Teams in this seminar will be working through more technical skills and discriminations that will allow them to progress successfully through more course challenges. Teams will focus on the dog’s understanding and independence of these skills and grow their team work. This seminar would also be for those of you with younger dogs that are already competing – but, have holes in your dog’s foundation & understanding that you need help fixing to progress forward. We will focus more on handling maneuvers and incorporate jumps, tunnels, and weave poles only.
